Illustrated with black and white photographs. ' Recapture the history of Bristol in the lives of its nurses, building workers, its engineers, its farm labourers, its housewives, even its cabaret artists. Here are the stories of the people who, for a century, have built, repaired, healed, washed, cooked and entertained for Bristol. From a Southmead council house to a cottage in Blackhorse, from Bedminster buses to a St. Philips Marsh school assembly, from Durdham Downs to Horfield Jail, come the stories of how a young lad lost his first job, how Old Charlie the horse got stuck in a front door, how two men put together an act that lit up Bristol in the 1950's and how a Knowle West woman battled through Holloway, Broadmoor and Rampton to find happiness in Weston-super-Mare. These are stories of courage of hilarity, of tragedy and contentment, of struggle and of discovery. In this book beats the heart of Bristol. Here is the SECOND volume of Bristol Lives, packed with more accounts of life in Bristol, from the early years of this century, to the present. From Bedminster to Hotwells, Southmead to Hartcliffe, Knowle to Filton, St Pauls to St Philips, Bristol's real history is told by the people who have lived it. Read about 'Woolton Pie', earning pennies as a 'reader' at silent films, and playing down by the Danny. Discover the truth about garden gates and pigeons, Bristol's link with Puerto Morazan, the Scheherezade of Wills' tobacco stripping room, and the 'hard ship of life'. Here are the life stories that tell a people's history of Bristol in all its courage, humour, struggle and resistance. There's more to Bristol Lives!.'
